Tampa Bay Thrives is an innovative nonprofit helping people in the Tampa Bay area better address mental health and substance use issues by focusing primarily on:
- Navigation: Improved navigation resources to help individuals in need find the appropriate care.
- Access: Access to behavioral health short-term counseling to provide a “first stop” for individuals suffering from anxiety, depression or substance use disorders.
- Awareness: Removing the stigma of seeking treatment for mental health issues.
Tampa Bay Thrives’ pilot program, Let’s Talk, launches in late July. Let’s Talk is a navigation support line for individuals in Hillsborough County experiencing mental health or substance abuse issues. Tampa Bay Thrives plans to expand Let’s Talk to Pasco, Pinellas Polk counties in 2022.
